inspirational video

one of the things i miss from my practice was the
daily interaction i had with my young teenage and
young adult patients

once you lose that constant contact
you can actually get this distorted view of our youth
based on newspaper articles the internet and of course

one of the things i enjoy about working at habitat is that
we get these groups of kids coming in from schools churches
youth groups sport teams
that infusion of youth in our builds that frankly
i think all the volunteers that are regulars really enjoy
well most of us are gray haired and retired
enjoy it i do
i enjoy talking to them about what they are studying
what their college and future plans are
it gives me a pulse of what good hands our future is
being left in

they dont sweat a lot of the things we make as our issues
like gay marriage race etc

so i found this video below
this young college student is spending her college years
living in a retirement home

its well worth watching

here is the youtube link below for the above video if it does not show
on your smartphone

 click here to watch the video

when my time comes to enter one of these places
please allow those kids to live there
to youthenize us all
